She works hard for the money
So hard for it honey
She works hard for the money
So you better treat her right

Wow! Donna Summer rocks.

Thumbs Up, if you're listening to this catchy song in 2013.

I often sit in the trendy Hard Rock Cafe here in South Mumbai but the DJ has never played this fab Donna Summer song - she works hard for the money. I found it on YouTube just some time ago.

Much better tunes out there by her than this shlop pop

Hot Stuff is good.

But Donna Summer's song "works hard for the money" is catchier and has better beats.

I find my self swinging more naturally and with greater energy to "works hard for the money" - I mean my body moves in better and quicker rhythm to "works hard for the money.." than to the beats of the song Hot Stuff that you posted.

Anyway, thank you.

I find the lyrics of Hot Stuff too suggestive in an explicit sexual kind of way - an invitation to bed a hot guy.

It's all about lust/sex.

Anyway, thank you for the link.

Israel will be conquered and punished by Syria and Egypt. This will be for idolatry and rejection of their God. The USA will also go into captivity by Russia for the same reason. You can also expect famine, the infrastructure in these nations will totally collapse. This will start when VWD Day comes.

rabbee: you, can't be syrius? egypt and syria had better conquer, their own worse idolatry first. before they get conquered, by another idolatrous nation.

and russia has enough problems, with their birth rate being less than 1 to 2. i would be more apt to believe, china invading russia if anything.

Israel has nukes and powerful allies in the West...

Or do you think that Russia and/or China will destroy Israel and hand her over to the invading armies of Egypt and Syria?

The second scenario is possible...

So, how would the US be captured by Russia?

I think science has the capacity to tame much of nature and manipulate the weather to her advantage...

There are several leads pointing in this direction....

At one time, I thought that natural processes were solely responsible for droughts, famines, earthquakes, cyclones, tsunamis and the like but as I came into contact with certain well placed sources and researched the subject independently I discovered that though nature has been creating calamities on a global scale down the ages yet since recent times man has developed the tech to manipulate nature in unprecedented ways and the UN has made mention of this fact and passed a resolution banning the use of weather warfare....

Unless, of course, you believe that someone sitting up there would soon pull the strings and hey pronto we get droughts and massive flooding leading to famines....

Paranormal activity can in certain ways create natural calamities as well as heal the sores of nature but all this has been done on a local scale for a limited time and usually there's an intervention from a counter current and the problem eases.

Global famine engineered by some paranormal power is a bit too far fetched....

The paranormal powers don't work in that petty way...

Their God?

Yes, Judaism is monolatristic meaning that it chooses to worship just one God out of many Gods.

What do you mean by idolatry?

Why is it bad?

Is monism also bad when it's patently clear that nondualism is far superior to monolatry, polytheism and paganism since it aims at the complete union of the individualized aspect with the absolute field of conscious-energy - the origin of manifested existence in all its gradations - as a living experience?

Evidently, monism is the logically, experimentally and experientially verifiable truth of existence.

Thats because one song is more discoey and the other has its roots in blues

You are born to disco

Infinite regress...
Who were the progenitors of my late late late grandparents who lived in the ME in those days? Who in turn were their progenitors and so on ad infinitum until we go all the way back possibly 100,000 years or more to the proto-human types that appeared on earth?
Those ME people who some mere 3000 to 4000 years ago rejected say God X of their ancestors and who later began worshipping another deity called El who they borrowed from other cultures of the ME are the Hebrews.
Did Abraham (whose ancestors, and he himself, worshipped a God other than El) lose his Kashmiri, Afghani or Iraqi gene pool simply by switching devotion from his ancestral God X to the new chosen God, El? No. The ancestral gene pool of Abraham remained intact even after he rejected the God of his ancestors and began worshipping another God by name El. The ancestral genotypes of the new converts to El worship remained intact for long until the new beliefs and inter-racial marriages (including mass marriages with European converts) among the exclusive group of El worshippers altered them or overlaid the old gene patterns or produced new gene expressions.
1. Joel dear my questions are not trick question so please make another attempt at answering them. see below.

When will YOU stop being the son of your parents?

Are you still the great-grandson etc. of your progenitors?

2. You speak of rejecting God X etc and I am trying to determine the relationship between BIOLOGY, DNA and beliefs.

Learn this, YOU can change your beliefs from say yoga to worshipping a dog but there shall not be any associated change in your BIOLOGY or DNA.

Question, are you saying that those who convert to Judaism will have a change in their BIOLOGY or DNA meaning that their DNA will change from what it was to Jewish DNA because of a change in beliefs?

Explain how this is achieved.

3. Are you telling me that because the man rejected Judaism his BIOLOGY has changed? Recall, you called him an ex-Jew and so in his lifetime he was a Jew.
